From 50cl ceramic bottle. Pours caramel gold with thick head although subsiding. Floral notes and light citrus tones, gooseberry. Taste is thick and just as complex. Roasted malt, coriander, herbaceous mouthfeel. Transitions to bitter orange aftertaste. Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2008
Pours a nice sparkling gold colour with a white head. Yeasty and slightly citrus aroma. Strong yeast flavour with a strong citrus and vanilla taste. Quite spicy and hoppy. JonnyDr (132) - , Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2008
Pour deep copper-brown with a medium sized tan head. Lavendar, metallic notes and a malty bitterness. Not great. FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large orange-white head. The aroma was sweet, tart, yeasty and had a strong candied fruit note. The flavor was tart, bitter and had a strong cane sugar presence with strong ripe apple and pear. The finish was long tart and tangy. The mouthfeel was thick. Wonderful. jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours hazy burnt amber. Smells sweet and fruity. Tastes thick with fermented fruits, sticky molasses and burnt sugars, plums, black cherries, raisins, some nuts. Aftertaste is sticky sweet.

750ml bottle from the LCBO
The aroma is malty with a touch of sweetness and alcohol
Pours a ligh hazy copper with a good sized frothy head no glass lacing at all
The taste is slightly sweet and fruity but i do not find it as sweet as a lot of people seem to i find it a touch watery for a triple with too much alcohol taste

750 mL bottle from the LCBO (zomg trappist beer at LCBO). Malty, for a triple, which makes it a bit more refreshing than others in this style. wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - OCT 25, 2008
Pours a clean manuka honey amber with a quickly killed head. The aroma is light and fruity, some dates, orange cleaning product and spices. A nice flavorful beer, the orange is a pleasant surprise, its almost like a foundation on which the rest of the flavours are built on, there is a good bit of malty sweetness, raisin, caramel, finishes with a hoppy citrusy orange rind flavour. Warm foamy mouth feel clinches the deal. All really pretty fantastic. I don’t know if I would really call this a tripel, but still really fantastic. Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 25, 2008
HOw cna it be that it has almost the same rating than the Dubbel, anyway it has the right aroma and aftertatse, the apparience is just amazing. Cloudy and sweet and spicy. Like orange peels. BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2008
I really liked the La Trappe brand beers I’ve tried, and thought this one was particularly good. It is darkest, maltiest tripel I think I’ve ever had, and it really suited this beer I thought.
It was a dark amber color, particularly for a tripel. However, it was a brilliant body and an attractive appearance with effervescence floating consistently floating to the top of the glass. Aroma was very malty with some metallic smells and tripel-ish spice and light sweetness. Mouthfeel was a bit thin. But flavor was quite good - spice up front and lots of good malt taste. Not very much like other tripels I’ve had, but excellent.
I would highly recommend this beer. I had this bottle at Waagstuk in Antwerp.
